Ahmad gave 2/7 of his stamps to Benjamin. Next, Benjamin gave 1/4 of the stamps

he then had to Ahmad. In the end, Ahmad had 732 stamps and Benjamin had 441 stamps.

How many stamps did Benjamin have at first?

Before----------------------7u ------- ?

After A gives 2u to B ---- 5u -------?+2u =4p

After B gives p to A------ 5u+p------3p

Stamps -------------------732--------441

From above,

3p-> 441 => p = 441/3 = 147 => 4p = 147 x 4 = 588

5u + p -> 732

5u -> 585

u-> 117

2u -> 234

**Hence Benjamin originally has (588-234) = 354 stamps**
